Sun printing is a surface design technique where you allow the heat and light of the sun to help you dye your fabric.  Besides sunlight, it requires stencils or masks to create the pattern.

You can learn more about sun printing (even without the sun) in my online class all about it.  Class is $25 with lifetime access, and the technique works on paper as well as fabric.  I used cloth napkins I bought online, but you can also print fabric yardage and make your own napkins.

Here's a look at one of the napkins all spread out.

And here are the napkins, folded up, and ready for a festive celebration!

Both my Mom and my son have birthdays near Thanksgiving, so it always feels like an extra special day with extra gratitude in our house.  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and/or friends!
